SetElementPosition

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This function sets the position of an element to the specified coordinates.

[[|link=]] Warning: Do not use this function to spawn a player. It will cause problems with other functions like warpPedIntoVehicle. Use spawnPlayer instead. MTA freezes player by itself so it is not recommended to use setElementFrozen after changing element's position.

Syntax

bool setElementPosition ( element theElement, float x, float y, float z [, bool warp = true ] )
